College Football Playoff Top 25 Rankings -- Baylor #13

New, 161 comments

This will be the thread where people talk, if they so desire, about the first-ever CFB rankings to be released at 6:30 central on ESPN.

Just for the heck of it, give me your rankings in the comments as far as you want to go.  As soon as they are officially available in a format we can use, I will update this post with more information.

For the record, I think this is a publicity stunt done to somehow legitimize the CFB Playoff that will only make things worse, not better.

UPDATE: Baylor is #13, third in the Big 12 behind #7 TCU (who we beat) and #9 KSU (who we have yet to play). The SEC has 4 of the Top 6 because of course, and somehow Ole Miss made it in despite their loss this past weekend.

Only goes so far, I guess. The full rankings:
